Heidi Beal

Karen Weihs

   

Mixed Media | Encaustic | Photography

Heidi F Beal is an interdisciplinary artist.  She works primarily in mixed media painting using photography and encaustic. Her art is content driven and explores concepts of fertility, our relationship with the common vital life force in all living things, and the edge where life meets death. Beal’s artwork often references nude studies, architecture, transparent forms, fertility symbols, and found objects. As evidence of one of nature’s most dramatic expressions of our planet’s life cycle, nests and eggs are especially present in her work. Current works have centered around how we internally carry our life force with us. This has led her to paint with encaustic onto translucent surfaces and illuminate the works from inside or behind the pieces.

Beal’s artwork is narrative, gaining much of its creative inspiration from within herself. Introspective issues are explored, encouraging the viewer to be transformed to another place and time. For Beal, her art becomes a personal religion, crossing lines between traditional art, other disciplines, and her connection to Spirit. Beal says, “My art feels as though it is channeled through my body. As a conduit, I often feel as if Spirit is directing my hands. My mind then follows, reading the story my hands tell.”

Within mentorship groups with Heidi, members will have the opportunity to fill in voids of existing encaustic techniques and advance their skills.  The focus of the group, however, will be to develop a deeper understanding of the content and intent of their work, hone in on a more authentic voice, and perhaps look inside one’s self for inspiration.
